Every good wine is a bit of history. It is an occasion, a concurrence of space and time . . .
To this remarkably apt quote from the philosopher Marthinus Versfeld, Carolyn Martin adds that every Creation wine tells a unique story. “At Creation the art of winemaking begins long before the grapes are harvested. It begins with the land itself, the spirit of which lives on in every bottle, it captures a moment in time.”
Having said that, Carolyn expands on the estate’s motto: ‘Creating wines of distinction’. “Right from the start it has been our intention to harness the great potential of our land in order to create site-specific wines reflecting our unique terroir – wines that proudly ‘remember’ their roots.”
Creation in Gauteng
Carolyn and JC Martin and Phillip Marais recently joined Creation Wines brand ambassador, Nkulu Mkhwanazi, in Gauteng. Apart from extensive trade visits catching up with valued clients, their hectic programme included Vinimark trade shows where the latest Creation releases were showcased.
Among the highlights was a fun curry demo with Karen Roux from Perky Pepper in Pretoria where three curry dishes were paired with three Creation wines. “We also had the pleasure of presenting an Old Mutual Wine Club tasting at Riboville in Midrand, staying over in the boutique hotel which incidentally, is ideal for small business functions,” says Carolyn. “We look forward to presenting a private wine and food pairing in the Riboville cellar soon, and will keep you informed.”
Another highlight was a private client dinner pairing at Épicure by Chef Coco where JC presented a Chardonnay and Pinot Noir masterclass. Creation has a longstanding relationship with the talented Coco Reinarhz and according to Carolyn the Pan-African pairing menu was brilliant – especially the duck breast with bissap and penja pepper sauce served with the Creation Pinot.
